Strongest teams of the
This was the
last contest in a season where every match has been closely fought with
just a few points either way resulting in big changes to the finishing
order. The only certainty entering this match was that Harrow were
definitely for the drop. The promotion and relegation spots were pretty
much settled but some good efforts could still see changes. With this in
mind most clubs entered their strongest teams of the year and were
rewarded with some fine performances on a sweltering hot day with
temperatures hovering around 30 deg C.
withdrawals by Wade Bennett Jackson, Gary Wilson and Cameron Johnson
meant that several golden oldies were brought into the fray and several
young guns were over worked. James Kelly flew in from Madrid for good
points in the B1500 and B5000 in weather very similar to his normal
training conditions. But the middle distance star was once again Paskar
Owor who amassed big points by finishing second in the B800, third in
the A1500 and then winning the A5000. Steve Davies ran his fastest 800
this year despite an Achilles problem which prevented him running down

The Eton track
has seen better days and the sprinters were finding it difficult to
anchor their starting blocks. In the 100 we witnessed athletes getting
colleagues to stand on the back of blocks to stop them moving. Greg
Cackett had ran an excellent 10.48 for second despite blocks slipping
but in the 200 he started without blocks and it took Internationals Luke
Fagan (20.60 win) and Nigel Levine to ease him into third spot with a
fine 21.21 timing.
Nipped home for lunch
The first track
event saw Richard Aspden fill our B400H spot for the first time this
season. Normally JC is a lone Belgrave competitor in the long hurdles.
This time both our men finished fourth gaining more than expected
points. They doubled up in the 110H also but with less success. Richard
later competed in the high jump as A string and concluded with a leg in
the long relay. He lives very close to the Eton track and nipped home
for lunch and tea between events. Cool. The shortage of officials showed
in several ways. Daniel Gardner cleared 4.90 in the A pole vault
competition only to discover that one of the stands was at 4.80. When
this was corrected he again sailed over but could not match the winning
jump of 5.00 and settled for second. He added more good points in the B
high jump. In the 400 hurdles we saw the B event runners ling up in the
same lanes which the A event runners had used. It was only when the B
race was about to start was this noticed. A quick game of musical chairs
remedied the error and peace was restored.
Above: Mark Allen ended the day just 1
point shy of our season's record points score. Back from Madrid for a
1500m/5000m double, James Kelly. J-C Roghi was pleased with 4th in the A
string 400 metre hurdles.
Matt Richards - A
string hammer win
Once again the
throws produced big points with Matt Richards winning the A hammer and
Mark Allen the B. Mark was looking for 33 points from his day’s work in
a bid to equal Paskar’s annual points total record of 129. With third
spot in the B Discus backing up a good series by Leith Marar and filling
the B pole vault and long jump slots he was closing in on his target
with just the shot and javelin left. The A spear was entrusted to the
redoubtable Wez Smith. Wez jetted in from his home in Finland and
peppered the 60m line to gain good points. Few will remember Wez as he
first competed in BAL as junior in 1997. Three years ago he broke his
arm in competition but has since made a remarkable recovery. Another
Golden Oldie Abi Ekoku stepped in for the shot and recorded an
exceptional 14.17m on no training whatsoever.
Mark Allen - 1 point
shy of record score for the season
Meanwhile Mark Allen was
plugging away for points. He beat Abi for A spot which was ironical as
the scoring system gave him 6 points in the A shot whereas the same
distance in the B event was worth 12 points. Mark was willing Abi to
better his 14.32m effort so their positions could be reversed but
without success. As a result Mark’s final total for the season was 128
points, just one shy of the record.
For most of the
match Belgrave had been in second or third place but our weary relay
men, exhausted from earlier efforts could only muster a handful of
points and we dropped to fourth spot on the day and sufficient to move
Belgrave up to fifth spot in the final League standings.
Thanks to Tony
Ganio for looking after the jumps squad and Physio Chris Lewis who
helped keep the show on the road.
With more comebacks
than Frank Sinatra this match was the last one for the team manager who
retired three years ago, but has stepped in again and again as no
replacement could be found. it remains to be seen whether somebody will
volunteer for the team manager’s job next season. If not the future of
Belgrave in the BAL is in question.

Marty - an Olympian at last
Marathon, 12 August. Having competed for Australia
for many years at cross country, road and track, Woking born Belgravian Marty Dent was selected for
the Olympic Marathon and ended up second Aussie home, ahead of the
Brits, in 28th place with 2:16:29.
Support for our man abounded on the course with a whole group of
folk in the St. James' Park area wearing 'Team Marty' tee-shirts.
In the warm conditions Marty ran an incredibly even-paced race,
going through the first 5k split in as low as 83rd place (16:01) and
A tough day for brave Goldie
Javelin, 7 August. In the form of her life
having set a British Record for the Javelin of 66.17 metres in the London Grand Prix
on 14 July, Goldie Sayers then had the misfortune to suffer a
torn ligament in her elbow. She was determined to throw in the
Olympic Stadium, in spite of whatever pain she had to endure, hoping
to launch a throw that would get her to the final. It didn't
A clearly upset Goldie told TV
interviewers, "It was just not meant to be but I
made the decision [at the holding camp] in Portugal
to not make an emotional decision but I know I can
throw 70m and I will carry on to Rio.
"It's just gutting not to be in the
final in front of a home crowd. Hopefully I can do
the country proud in Rio.".
Phillips Idowu also unable to do himself justice
Triple Jump, 7 August.
It was double trouble for Belgrave fans as
Phillips Idowu, a pretty solid bet for a medal
and maybe even a gold one, was also unable to do
himself justice. Dubbed the Mystery Man by the
media over the last week or so, due to his non
attendance at the holding camp, it became obvious
when qualifying round started that Phillips was
ring rusty. He hadn't competed since early
season when he slipped on a take-off board and
injured his knee. That knee is still not right
and in Phillips' own words, "I've competed for 12
years and I can't remember a time I've performed
that badly." But he further added, "Definitely
I am going to carry on competing. I don't think
you've seen the best of me yet. Regardless of my
achievements at these Games I was never going to
Dwain Chambers just misses a place in the 100m final
Below: Ryan Bailey of the United States, Daniel
Bailey of Antigua and Barbuda, Dwain Chambers of Great
Britain, Usain Bolt of Jamaica, Bingtian Su of China and Antoine
Adams of Saint Kitts and Nevis come together to contest semi-final 2
with only the first two to go through to the final (Gerald Phiri of
Zambia and Richard Thompson of Trinidad and Tobago are out of shot).
100 metres, 4-5 August. After a 12 year
absence from Olympic competition Dwain Chambers turned on a
performance of which we and he can be rightly proud.
A first round heat win took him to a semi-final where
he lined up in the lane alongside Jamaica's Usain Bolt. We
always expected that it would take a sub-10 performance to get Dwain
to the final as an automatic qualifier but this did seem to be a
possibility after his earlier 10.02 - amazingly only 5/100ths off
his best time set eleven years ago. However, this Olympic 100 metres
competition was like no other as the best sprinters the World has
ever seen came together in the 'semis', and in a 'stacked' race
Dwain was 4th in 10.05 after being close to heading the field during
the early stages.
Sure there was some disappointment but it had been a
long, hard, and sometimes dark road that eventually brought Dwain
Chambers back to the limelight of Olympic competition. Now 34 years
of age and with some fast young Britons snapping at his heels it is
possible that Rio 2016 might be an Olympiad too far but the London
crowd had given him a rapturous welcome, he had fully justified the
selectors' faith in him and his smile at the end of the race told us
that it had all been worth it.
After some marvellous performances in 2011, Darvin
Edwards representing St. Lucia, was unable to clear his opening
height in the high jump.

UKWAL - Belles end up in the top half
of the division
In spite of another long haul - to Leeds
this time - the Belles turned out a respectable team to place fifth on
the day and ended up in the top half of their division ... not bad at
all. And not only that, Team Manager Bob Bridges made it to the
match to watch his ladies in action so it was cause for a double

League National Division One, Match 3, Copthall Stadium, Barnet, 28 July 2012.
Chasing every extra point
Full results |
Photos by Emanuelis Stasaitis
Match 3 provided a nostalgic chance to see
the tired Copthall stadium for the last time. Building works behind the
back straight have already started as part of a massive Ł20million
re-build following the sale of the site to Saracens rugby club.
Shaftesbury Barnet have negotiated a 30 year lease so athletics will be
retained in the forseeable future thanks to an innovative design
including retractable seating which will cover the ends of the track
through the rugby season. Ground works meant that several events had to
be held outside the track and your elderly team manager's fitness was
tested as he scurried from event to event.
But this was not the only challenge. This
match coincided with the Olympic road race which had closed many roads
in Surrey and South London. The inevitable transport delays and the
11.00am start to this double fixture were bound to throw up problems.
David Wellstead missed the 11.00 am long jump start and arrived just in
time to record a modest third round effort. But Paul Ogun went some way
to compensate by winning the A event with his last jump. Later in the
triple jump both men responded well and David produced a season's best
to get second spot in the B competition with Paul third in the A event.
Alongside them in the pole vault junior Daniel Gardner won with a new pb
of 5.10m and Andy Boudrie popped over a height for B points. Andy too
had been delayed and missed the high jump where our sole competitor was
Mark Allen. Mark buzzed from event to event gaining valuable points. In
the 11.00am hammer he led specialist Matt Richards until the last round
when Matt finally composed himself and powered out a winning effort just
shy of 60m. With Mark winning the B we had maximum points in the hammer.
The discus also produced good points with Leith Marar fourth in the A
and again Mark winning the B. But the javelin suffered from the loss of
Aaron Crawford while the shot yielded meagre points. Peter Mayfield
responded to a last minute call and gained valuable points in the
javelin and shot to back up Mark Allen.
Exciting races and
The track produced some exciting races and
times. But our early week hopes of a track points bonanza suffered a
blow when on Friday night Wade Bennett Jackson reported unfit. On the
day Pierre Walker stepped into the B100 and Cameron Webb the B200 both
acquitting themselves well and gleaning more points. Greg Cackett saved
the day by doubling the 100 and 200 finishing a close second in each
high quality sprint. Interestingly the Division 1 sprints were faster
than the Premiership ones which followed in this double match fixture.
The middle distance races proved compelling with several men competing
in the team for the first time this year. It was great to see Kris
Gauson back. He has been in the States for four years and after a long
collegiate season had already brought his season to a close. Thankfully
he agreed to support the squad with one more competition and despite
being clearly tired gained fourth in the A800 and third in the B 1500.
Paskar Owor produced his usual clutch of points finishing third in the
B800 and winning the B3000. Dan Mulhare too made a welcome return to the
team and won the A3000 by just a whisker from a fast finishing Paskar.
Both men had broken away from the field and battled each other over the
last two laps. Dan finished with the bragging rights as previously he
had also won the B1500. But it was the steeplechase that gladdened the
eyes. New member Matthew Graham ran away from the field to win in
impressive style. Matthew is just 22 years old and has a great future
ahead. Will Cockerell again produced a solid effort for B race points
despite his vertical drop with pike technique into the water. (Tom Daley
eat your heart out!).
again JC was our only representative in the 400H and also doubling up in
the B110H. Gary Wilson produced another solid effort to get fourth in
the A sprint hurdles.
Belgrave were second
Coming into the final relays Belgrave were
second. But a makeshift sprint squad couldn't overcome a poor start
while ten minutes later the long relay boys lined up to find they
numbered but three. Someone had gone home unexpectedly. Fortunately
Pierre Walker who had warmed down from the sprint relay had enough time
to get his spikes back on and took over the final leg to gain the 6
points which ensured we finished equal third with Cardiff AC. This was
the second match this year we had tied a place. Just one more point in
each of these matches would have made a big difference to Belgrave's
League standing . If ever proof was needed that "chasing for every extra
point" remains the name of the game this was it.
Harrow AC are doomed for the drop and
Gateshead have only a slender chance of staying in Division 1. HHH on
the other hand are going to experience the joys of next year’s
Premiership. As a fellow SLAN club we wish them well. So on to the final
match at Eton on the 18th August where matters will be decided.

Three Match 2, Liverpool, 1 July 2012.
Great work by the Belles in Liverpool
Taking a team to the further flung reaches of the
country is always problematic and with Team Manager Bob Bridges
temporarily out of action Don Anderson stepped up to drive
the majority of our squad in a minibus from Battersea to Liverpool on the morning
of the match. A hold up on the M1 meant a late arrival but
thankfully the organisers agreed to hold back the timetable half an
hour and as our girls arrived they swung straight into action.
With Don switching into timekeeper mode, Val offering her services
as a track judge and Rex Bale, Jack Albrow and Mike Causer doing duty on the
field we even earned a full score for our officials. Big thanks to
As the early results came in, with a great start in
the 400m hurdles thanks to Louise Aylwin and Ashleigh Horrobin, soon the
team were in third team spot ... and then third
became second when we picked up two third spots in the 100m ...
amazing stuff ... although Tamara Hamond was not impressed with her
sprint performances and later put herself forward to run the 2k
steeplechase as penance! It was wonderful to have Lou Blizzard and
Sarah Murphy back in the team; both are now resident in the North
and they boosted our middle-distance scores handsomely.
As usual heptathlete Jodie Favell was everywhere. She
normally manages at least one win and here it came in the long jump,
and with Michelle Nestor taking second in the 'B' this became a high
scoring event for us. Rebecca Pile was awesome in winning the
400 metres and followed up with a 200m 'B' win and last leg in the
Vilma Thompson, Hazel Mead and sprinter Haylene Ryan
made sure that all throwing events were covered and the only
discipline not tackled by a Belgravian was the pole vault.
Gradually, as the match drew to a conclusion and things levelled out
the Belles were delighted with a final team place of fourth ...
which takes them up to equal fourth in the division.
Time to catch breath ... before the long haul home again!
Don - we couldn't have done this without you.

League National Division One, Match 2, Gateshead, 30 June 2012.
It's hard graft in windy Gateshead
The Thursday before the match saw the Gateshead
area struck by storms so severe that seasoned travellers reported
conditions worse than the most severe tropical downpours. TV news showed
pictures of the Tyne Bridge being struck by lightning and cars submerged
under four feet of water. As the team headed towards Newcastle it was
not known whether the match would proceed.
Last year thirteen brave souls journeyed to
Gateshead. This year an expanded team of sixteen took to the stage. With
no specialist vaulters or high jumpers and Paul Ogun and David Wellstead
doubling the long and triple it was left to Mark Allen and Andy Boudrie
to step in and harvest a few precious points in the vertical jumps. The
throws squad was also reduced in numbers with Mark Allen, Matt Richards
and Aaron Crawford covering the four throws. Matt has been injured since
May and was delighted with a second placing in the hammer in his first
outing of the season.
Head winds gusting
The track started with the sprinters suffering from
head winds gusting up to 5m/s. With no chance of good times it was a
case of chasing points. Greg Cackett raced to a clear win in the A100.
Wade Bennett Jackson couldn’t repeat his match 1 win in the B100 and
settled for silver. Clearly he was struggling and it turned out he
hadn’t trained since the previous weeks Olympic trials and was carrying
a hamstring niggle. This showed in the A200 where he finished fourth and
nearly scuppered the sprint relay as he struggled on the first leg.
Fortunately Greg Cackett put the brakes on and, unlike the UK’s men’s
squad at the Euro Champs, the baton passed safely to finish in third
thanks to Greg, Cameron Webb and a storming home straight by sprint
hurdler Gary Wilson.
The track events contributed the majority of the
points thanks to fine 400’s from new member Andrew Boudrie and Ciaran
Collins. Steve Davies added strength winning the A 800 and A1500. The
latter race saw an epic lead out by TVH’s Darren Hall who gave 100% but
still couldn’t resist the late surge of Steve closely followed by Paskar
Owor who won the B event. Paskar gained more valuable in the 3000 backed
by Will Cockerell who had travelled up on the day to be our first
steeplechaser to toe the start line this season. It was pleasing to see
JC run a season’s best in the 400H in windy conditions.
Hero of the day - Mark
So, once again a small team mixed and matched to
gain every point. Hero of the day was Mark Allen who managed six events
(The League limit is seven so there is room for improvement!). The point
spread between teams is closer than ever this year and just a few extra
athletes would have made a huge difference. We seem to have said that
after the first match. With match three taking place at Copthall on the same
day as the Olympic cycling road race there may be trouble ahead!

A near miss for Goldie in Euro javelin final
A throw of 60 metres was required for automatic qualification for
the women's javelin final. Group A saw only the Ukrainian Vira
Rebryk achieve this so when Goldie Sayers' spear touched down
at 58.02 metres with her first throw in Group B it was already
pretty certain that this would comfortably see her advance to
the final. Any slight doubt was cast aside with Goldie's second
throw though - 60.90 metres - which topped Group B and placed her
second of the 23 competitors.
No high jumper needed to attempt 2.28 metres - the top 12 having
been identified some way short of that standard. In Group A
Samson Oni started out at 2.15m, which he took at his second
attempt, before moving through 2.19m without trouble and then taking
two attempts again to clear 2.23m. At 2.26m he had three failures
but only Mudrov (Russia) and Stanys (Lithuania) were successful with
all other qualifiers going through on 2.23m.
The German duo Christina Obergföll and Linda Stahl
opened strongly in the first round of the women's javelin final with
throws of 65.12m and 63.69 while Goldie Sayers' effort was a
'no throw'. Leading qualifier
Rebryk got in on the act in round two by launching her effort to
63.44m and Goldie hit a 63.01m which put her in fourth place ... and
that's the way it stayed until Rebryk took the lead in round five
with 66.86. There really wasn't much in it and with luck
Goldie will be as close to the action again at the Olympic Games.
Jumping last in the high jump final, Samson Oni
elected to open his campaign at 2.20 metres. Sadly it was not
his day and three failures saw him exit the competition with 'no
William Sharman progressed to the semi-final
stage of the sprint hurdles, running 13.63/-2.0 to place second in
A comfortable semi-final win in 38.98 saw the GBR
sprint relay boys (with Dwain Chambers running second leg)
into the final.
In the first of three semi-finals of the 110 metre
hurdles William Sharman equalled his season's best of
13.55/0.0 but as he was placed fourth he had to wait to see if he'd
get to the final as a 'fastest loser'. Semi number two came and went
and he was still good for the final, but the fourth placer from race
three was 7/100ths faster than our man and Will's European
Championships were over ... and probably his chance of squeezing
into the Olympic team.
The GBR relay hoodoo struck again. Surely in
the running for medals and possibly those of the gold variety,
disaster occurred on the first exchange between Christian Malcolm
and Dwain Chambers. Malcolm had started so well and as
Chambers took off all seemed set for perfect takeover ... for an
instant. But somehow that baton never quite reached
Dwain's hand. All over!
Aviva UKA Championships & Olympic Trials,
Birmingham, 22-24 June 2012.
Another UKA title for Goldie Sayers
The final day of the UKA Championships & Olympic
Trials saw two more titles fall to Belgravians and hopefully further
places booked for the Olympic Team.
An amazing tenth consecutive senior national javelin title
went to Goldie Sayers - who was just out of the medals in
fourth place at the Beijing Olympics where she threw her best ever
distance (and British Record) of 65.75 metres. With a 64.73 in the Samsung
Diamond League in Rome earlier this season she's not so far behind
the sort of distance that could see a medal come her way in London.
It would be Goldie's third Olympic Games.

Will Sharman was unlucky to place 4th in a
very tight sprint hurdles final and Samson Oni - who has the
Olympic Standard height of 2.31 tucked away from January this year -
placed second in the high jump and will surely be a part of the

Pressured Chambers storms to a dramatic win
After well publicised years in the wilderness and at last gaining at
least the legal possibility of competing in the 2012 Olympic Games
the now 34 year-old Dwain Chambers had to face perhaps his
toughest ever domestic 100 metre field, loaded with up and coming youngsters,
some nearly half his age.
The pressure was immense ... as can be seen by Dwain's reaction
after he crossed the line ... but the win was his in 10.25 secs.
It still remains for the Belgrave man to find the qualifying time of
10.18 and hopefully he can achieve this at the European
Championships which start in Helsinki this week.
of the 100 metre final
Also in the 100 metres the ever consistent Greg
Cackett was just 100th of a second from his best ever time in
winning his heat in 10.44 but was unable to get through the
semi-final stage. Getenesh Tamirat ran to 4th in the women's
10,000 metres with a time of 33:09.47 and she was the second UK
runner (although there were only four UK participants).
Jodie Favell set a personal record in her heat of the 400 metre
hurdles. Steve Davies made the final of the 1500 metres
but was unable to improve on the 3:46.72 from his heat.

Another banter filled
afternoon saw Belgrave pretty much winning or placing second in every
single event in which they took part ... but a very small women's team
and a general lack of middle-distance runners held the team back to
third place. Conditions were very windy so Ciaran Collins' 400 run
was special and hurdlers Jean-Claude Roghi and Louise Aylwin really
looked the business as they won their one lap races by the length of the
straight. Sprinter Haylene Ryan tried an event - high jump - that
she hasn't tackled since school days and impressed all with her western

Room for improvement
Man on a mission
most of last season Mark Allen is a man on a mission. His aim by the end
of the summer is to climb to seventh spot on the Belgrave all time BAL
points list.* The ex-decathlete arrived at Lee Valley ready for a
challenge. And he got it. He opened with the hammer at 11.30am, filled a
high jump gap at 12.30 and simultaneously competed in the javelin and
shot at 3.05pm. He also wanted to compete in the discus at 1.00pm but
veterans Abi Ekoku and Leith Marar (both long time big point earners for
Belgrave) thwarted him. But the throws proved problematic. First John
Osazuwa had two no throws in the hammer and his final safe effort was
some 20m short of his pb so Mark made the cut and John didn’t. And then
Abi Ekoku had two no throws in the discus and his safe final effort was
more than 20m shy of his pb. Aaron Crawford gained good points in a high
standard javelin competition but overall the throws squad didn’t quite
fulfil its promise.
While we were
at least filling the field events once again there were big gaps on the
track. With only J C Roghi in the 400H’s and Paskar Owor in the 800’s we
gleaned just 12 points from the 56 on offer. But worse was to come as we
had nobody in the chase. So effectively we had scored just 12 points
from 84. But there was better news on the way thanks to our speed men.
glimpse of hope came in the n/s 100m where Seun Marcus, Pierre Walker
and new man Thom Evans all ran pb’s. Add to them last year’s UK
Challenge winner Greg Cackett and Wade Bennett Jackson (who missed the
last two seasons through injury) and suddenly we had hope; and we were
not disappointed. First
Greg ripped to victory in the 100A in a fine pb
of 10.43sec then to be followed by Wade with another win in the 100B
producing an equally stunning time of 10.49sec. That will make a few
people sit up as many had written Wade off. The sprint relay later in
the match was eagerly awaited and provided another win for out
sprinters. So, we'd taken a total of 72 points from the 72 on offer.
With so many good sprinters on show these really were exceptional
And our other
speed men were also enjoying themselves. The 110H proved an exceptional
race with WSEH’s Lawrence Clarke speeding to a legal 13.47sec victory
which shattered the Divisional record held by our own William Sharman
(13.8 in 2009). Ex triple jumper Gary Wilson produced a 14.87sec pb for
a Belgrave third spot and with JC in 5th place in the 110HB race we had
gleaned more good points. Yet another pb was to follow. New member
Ciaran Collins reduced his to 49.74sec gaining a valuable sixth place in
jumpers were toiling away in temperatures pushing 27deg C. Daniel
Gardner won the A PV in an outdoor pb of 4.90m ably backed by Cameron
Johnson who placed 4th in the B pool. Paul Ogun was jumping big but
unfortunately was also destroying the plasticine on the long jump board.
Two no jumps meant a safe third attempt which was not good enough to
make the cut. As recompense Paul triple jumped. David Wellstead backed
up both events but was disappointed with below par jumps.
Back on the
track Wade Bennett-Jackson led the 200A up to 190m but faded badly to
get useful third place points. Still, he is racing himself to fitness
and there will be big improvements to come. He even volunteered for a
leg in the 400 relay.
The 1500m saw
the first appearance for Belgrave of Álberto Lozano de Pedro. With A and
B strings running together the first man home for each team scores in
the A event and the second man in the B. More of a cross and road man
Alberto sat at the back and when Paskar made a move on the leaders
Álberto too made his move. Paskar was rewarded with second in the A race
and Álberto concluded a fine début for Belgrave with a win in the B
race. Twenty minutes later both men lined up for the 5000m. Paskar had
the luxury of watching Álberto move from 10th to 2nd place on lap 10
with what can only be described as a 150m sprint. He then sat on
Cardiff’s up and coming Rowan Axe before unleashing a ferocious kick to
gain his first A string points for the club. Meanwhile Paskar cruised in
for a B string win and maximum points.
Last year the
final meeting event – the 4 x 400 relay – proved a step too far. This
year we had numbers to compete. Junior Vladimir Woodham-Smith got pushed
around a bit at the second take over and suffered accordingly but a fine
final leg by Melvyn Anukam gained 6th spot and 6 valuable points. So
after a day of downs and ups the team had clawed itself up to equal
fifth spot, just 6 points off third place. It was that close. The next
match is at Gateshead on the 30th June. The big question is can we get a
full squad out for that one? Last year we only managed a team of 13
athletes for the Gateshead match so plenty of arm twisting to take

The Belles fight hard to place fifth at
Missing our team manager Bob, the team did
him proud by eventually placing fifth in the match. Early high
scores in the 400 metre hurdles, thanks to Jodie Favell and Ashleigh Horrobin, set us on the right track and even though our lack of longer
distance runners held us back we seemed to be fairly solidly in fifth
throughout the afternoon. Rebecca Pile made a big impact with a
400 metres division record and then 3rd in the 200m. At the end of
the afternoon we finished strongly with third place in both relays and a
win in the javelin so went home pretty satisfied ... only to find that
somehow we'd finally been placed second to last. However, a week
later when all the officials points were added into the scores and
various other adjustments were made, we were back in 5th (only 20 points
off fourth) and in a much better position to fight to stay in the
